Twilight and New Moon
I did the opposite of what other people may try to do, I watched the movies before (gasp) reading the books and it is what I always do. Most of the time I end up enjoying the books a bit more, but the movie is usually worthwhile to compare and contrast and gives you a visual that is tangible to the eyes.
Yesterday I finished reading Twilight. I found it worthwhile and it helped me get a bit more into the movie which I had to watch again. I usually don't follow trends in reading and pick up books that look and sound interesting, or maybe someone has suggested was good.
Bella's character was entertaining and at times funny in a dark humor sort of way. What I didn't understand is why she was so careless at times but then again she is 17. I grew to like Edward's character more than I did in the movie, I felt the book went deeper into the core of his personality. I am still rooting for Jacob though and actually was a little excited to start reading New Moon.
Yes, I have already seen New Moon. I am sure I will still enjoy the book. Which is able to go into the story farther and illustrate details in my imagination a bit more than a movie can. I pick up things that I may not have noticed in the movie. The books also have things that happen that may not have been put into the movie. I won't go into detail of that, because I don't want to spoil it for those that have not read the books or seen the movies if there is any left that have not ;). I think it is worthwhile to watch the movies and read the books overall and recommend it for an easy read that has some enjoyment along with it. On a side note this is a 4 part series book; Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. I am going to read them all but I am only going to do this book chat for Twilight.
